Falmouth Aquarium opens new educational programme
Falmouth Aquarium has launched a new education and awareness programme about sustainable fishing practices aimed at young people.
Johanna Pope who owns the aquarium with husband Barry, said: "The future belongs to the children, and nowhere is this more important than when it comes to the future of the environment and the world's oceans.
"Unless the way we treat our oceans improve, then stocks of all species currently fished for food are predicted to collapse by 204, according to the WWF and the United Nations.
"Today's primary and secondary students are our future, so teaching them the importance of taking care of our oceans is necessary."

The aquarium has collaborated with the Marine Stewardship Council to provide the programme about sustainable fishing practices, how everyone can take part in improving the fishing stocks, and protect the future of fish, fishing communities and the environment.
Mrs Pope is inviting teachers for a free tour to find out more about the programme, which teaches students a day in the life of a fisherman, where fish comes from, and other subjects linked to the science and geography curriculum.
Anyone interested can contact Mrs Pope on e-mail at email@example.com.
The Falmouth Aquarium is a Cornish charity with local and international links, enabling visitors to both see and learn about marine life, as well as showcasing exhibits to share information from across the world.
It hosts workshops, meetings and lectures for the public as well as regular talks by local fishermen.
